Amazon Prime Air to attend Farnborough 2016

Interesting that Lauren Kisser, Director of Amazon Prime Air will be talking at the new bolt on drone show part after the main trade week of #FIA2016. I wonder how many military sUAS vendors will hang around to exhibit their wares. Or keep an eye on the opposition. DJI are a major sponsor.

By dint of the over 200,000 people that attend public day and trade days Farnborough will become by far this year, the largest remotely piloted aircraft show in the world.


We are delighted to confirm that Lauren Kisser, Director of Amazon Prime Air will be presenting ‘Flying Safely in the Shared Airspace’ in the Drone Safety theatre at the UK Drone Show at Farnborough International Airshow (16th – 17th July 2016).

In her presentation, Kisser will provide an overview of Prime Air, Amazon’s future drone delivery system. She will highlight the steps Amazon will take to ensure the safe delivery of packages, and provide tips for how others—both commercial and recreational users—can fly safely in this shared airspace.

Lauren Kisser who is based at Amazon in Seattle, will be speaking on the” future delivery system” from Amazon, designed to safely deliver packages to customers in 30 minutes or less using small unmanned aerial vehicles. Prime Air has great potential to enhance the services already provided by Amazon to millions of customers and also increase the overall safety and efficiency of their transportation system. Putting Prime Air into service will take some time, but will deploy when there is the regulatory support needed to realize the vision.
